The Coolidge Reagan Foundation and its Chairman, Shaun McCutcheon, have submitted an amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in support of Donald Trump in the case of Donald Trump vs United States. The brief emphasizes the importance of protecting free speech rights, arguing that Presidents do not forfeit their right to free speech by assuming office. McCutcheon asserts that President Trump, like any citizen, has the right to express his beliefs and concerns regarding the electoral process.

On the Foundation’s counsel, Dan Backer, criticizes attempts to criminalize dissenting opinions, especially those questioning election results, labeling such efforts as unAmerican. The brief argues that prosecuting President Trump for his political speech infringes upon his constitutional rights and the principles of separation of powers.

“@realDonaldTrump thinks 2020 was stolen. Agree or not, it’s his right to think & say what he wants, ignoring “advisors” & acting to protect elections. Freedom of speech starts w/freedom of ideas. That’s why we filed a SCOTUS Amici supporting him.”  –  @DanBackerEsq

It contends that the President must be able to engage in political discourse without fear of prosecution, highlighting the role of presidential speech as both a basis for immunity and a means to reinforce First Amendment protections. The Foundation remains committed to defending constitutional rights and the integrity of the electoral process as the case progresses.
